Dunskin or Dun?

Thinking about buying this mare she is registered as a buckskin but that dorsal stripe and frosting leaves me to believe she is a dun or dunskin. Though it could be countershading but the line just seems to crisp but to be honest I don't know much about duns. These are the only pics I have.

She looks like a buckskin to me. No other dun factor, and the dorsal doesn't look as crisp as I would expect on a dun. Buckskins often have frosting too.

Maybe she is just a regular dun and not a lineback dun.

Sorry - I couldn't resist...

I don't see any dun in her from those pictures either, and agree - the dorsal doesn't look like a dun dorsal...
